We are comprised primarily of members of the Centennial United Methodist Church in Roseville, Minnesota. The driving force behind the idea of forming this band was essentially one man's passion for Dixieland Jazz music.
Our founder, Warren Wildes, fell in love with Dixieland Jazz in college. Many years later he decided to form a band after he saw the talented musicians in the church Brass Ensemble. He reached out to other church members he knew to complete the band (percussion, banjo, trombone, piano, tuba & trumpet).
Later the band discovered and added very talented Dixieland musicians willing to join our group (clarinet and baritone), and our red-hot Torch Singer, Ms. Maisie (also a church member) adds to the fun.
